Crazy for polka dots

Whenever I see an item of clothing that has polka dots on it, I am tempted to immediately snatch it up, regardless of size or shape.  If it happens to be navy with white polka dots, I think I go a little crazy.  I don’t know why or what from my childhood may have influenced my love of these little dots, but it is my favorite pattern hands down.  (Even my wallet sports a nice tan with black polka dots pattern.)

When I tried on this navy polka dot top from Modcloth last night, I knew I had to wear it the very next day.  Not only was the pattern lovely, but the cut is a nice peplum shape and the fabric drapes nicely.  I paired it with a wide brown leather belt, my white linen blazer from Nordstrom, some cute red sandals and voila!  Perfect outfit to beat the Monday blues.   Did it make my day a little more awesome?  I’d like to think so.

Blue Crinkle Maxi Skirt

Yesterday I was in the mood to wear a little color.  The sun was shining, it was warm outside and I felt like something bright.  I decided to go with my new blue crinkle maxi skirt that I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this weekend.  I paired it with a white tee and a white linen blazer.  The skirt was so comfortable, and aside from rolling over it with my desk chair a few times, I loved wearing it.  It has a nice stretchy knit foldover top so you can adjust how long it is.  The knit lining was super soft, and the outer chiffon layer gave it a really nice look.  Super happy I found this skirt.
